Following the suspension of the strike action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) the management of University of Jos has approved and released the resumption date for the continuation of the second semester for the 2017/2018 academic session scheduled for 18th February 2019.
  Staff and students have resumed lectures and normal academic activities for the interrupted 2nd semester continues. Although some students are yet to resume, some who have resumed expressed their thoughts towards the resumption of school activities.
  Speaking to Andrew Ngozi a 200 level student of Mass Communication, he stated that “when I heard of the suspension of the strike by ASUU,  I was relieved and happy. I am hoping the Federal Government will meet up with ASUU’s demands in order to avoid any further interruptions in our academics. The reading continues and I am hoping to round up my program in the stipulated time.”
 Also Freedom Ebuka, a 200 level student of faculty of natural science, explained that he was not happy when the strike was suspended. He stated that “I expected the strike to last for four months because I was working in order to raise enough income that will cover most of my needs when I resume school. The call-off was early for me,  nevertheless there is nothing I can do about it but to tighten my belt and read hard. I am sad because the night reading continues but the main aim is to read hard and improve academically.”
  The resumption is a sign that the University of Jos and its management intend to conclude the 2017/2018 session in order to meet up with the already planned academic calendar.
